Mid-Valley STEM-CTE Hub Microgrants for Teachers and Businesses
The Mid-Valley STEM-CTE Hub’s goal is to ensure that all students in our region have access to meaningful STEM and CTE experiences. We firmly believe that supporting great teaching is one of the best ways to achieve that goal.
There is ample evidence that COVID is widening the existing systemic education and inequality gaps. We aim to work with teachers to create inclusive plans to reduce barriers and support students.
The MVSCH microgrants funded equity-focused, STEM-CTE-related projects or initiatives, especially for those furthest from opportunity.
With the conclusion of our third and final round, we have supported a total of 108 projects for a total of $257,492.98.
These microgrants are made possible by the Mid-Valley STEM-CTE Hub, with funding and support from the Oregon Department of Education, the Ford Family Foundation, the Oregon Community Foundation, and the John and Ginger Niemeyer Foundation.
